There will be a diner and dance at the back-cour of Noordeinde Palace in The Hague. The King is taking a gamble with the April weather, but he will have an alternative indoors when the weather is not too promising.

I wonder who will attend from Sweden, as King Carl Gustaf is celebrating his birthday on April 30th and this traditionally celebrated with a public celebration at the Royal Palace. On the hand is Crown Princess Victoria attending OPCW's 20th anniversary on the 26th in The Hague.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima leave the Noordeinde Palace after the reception for the fiftieth anniversary of the king.

King Willem-Alexander is on his way to Noordeinde Palace for the reception of his 50th birthday. The king was on foot because a coach blocked the passage of his car.

I operated my wish that my question last night concerns. On the eve of King's Day, April 26, an interview with King Willem-Alexander is emitted by both NOS and RTL 4, the RVD announced today. The program starts at 20:30.

The interview will be in a new sort format: the King will, together with the presentor Wilfried de Jong, watch media fragments from the last 50 years and comment on this. Events like the MH17 (the shooting-down of the Boeing 777 above Ukraine which caused the death of 300 people, amongst those 200 Dutch citizens), or personal dramas like his brother Prince Friso, but also about Nelson Mandela or the Eleven Cities Tour (200 kilometres of ice-skating in Friesland) in which the King participated.

The interview took place in one of the salons at Villa Eikenhorst, the library so to see. I am not sure what to think about the interior: picture.

The King is still living in his villa since his future residence, Huis ten Bosch, is under renovation, which seems to have more impact than I thought: picture.

That is a modern concept indeed. I suppose it makes for more interesting television than an interview of 2 hours, which is seldom done these days. The attention span of people has decreased over the years and apparently is now shorter than that of a gold fish.

The interviewer is not one of the usual suspects, which is nice too. And also nice that both the NOS as RTL are broadcasting the interview at the same time.

I did not know that the Eikenhorst had a library, I never saw it before. The furniture is neither meat nor fish indeed, not contemporary and not antique. The colours are awful. The recent biographies about the previous kings are standing on a shelf.

This was the library of Eikenhorst when the King's aunt Princess Christina lived there: picture. Total different interior.

Will there actually be foreign royal guests coming? Usually we would see some attendences 'leaked' in advance, often in the online agenda's of various royal houses. But I have seen nothing so far.

I see nothing in the agenda's of the Belgian and Spanish royal families around the end of the week.

What is known about the sport event in Rotterdam? Do we know where on the Maasvlakte it will be held? Are the king and guests expected to practice sports? I can't imagine -older- (royal) guests will be expected to participate, which makes me think their attendance will be limited.

If foreign royals would come, where would they stay? Noordeinde? Hotel des Indes or another hotel? Wouldn't the latter already be known by the press?

The number of guests must be limited as Noordeinde is too small to host a large ball ánd dinner in one night. I fear it will be a modest celebration. This may be a wise thing of course, but I prefer the Danish approach .

All of this is a private party thrown by the King. So other royal families don't put it in their public agendas. And with the sporting event it is what is expected, all of them sporting. Sadly it's also private so we won't be getting any pictures, unless Willem-Alexander feels sad for us and gives us something!

I keep forgetting that . But even at previous 'private' birthdays such as WA's 40th or Queen Beatrix' 60th we did get lots of photos and even live broadcasts in the latter case. Anyway, we will see...

That would have been funny indeed, but I suppose that is the last thing they will make public. But perhaps the press can catch a glimpse of the arrivals. Let's hope for their sake that the sports day will be inside as they predicted rain.

In an informal interview with SBS, Queen Máxima said that she already bought a present for the king, together with her daughters.

Maxima pakt verrassend uit op Koningsspelen

Pieter van Vollenhoven also has his present already, he says that the family usually buys a gift together.

In the programma WNL, last sunday, prince Constantijn said that he has great respect for the energy and enthousiasm with which the king and queen do their duties.
